This is the kids’ edition of the super popular game Ticket to Ride, with less complex rules. Your goal is to figure out the best routes to travel across America by train.
Not only will your child learn strategy and geography, but they’ll have a blast too. This game is simple enough for younger kids but still challenging enough for the whole family to enjoy. In fact, because the games are quicker with this edition, my family prefers to play this one over the full edition!
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 6 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) you can play this with younger kids as long as you help them with any parts involving reading.
From the Manufacturer
Players of all ages can venture across America by train in Ticket to Ride: First Journey! With a brand-new map and simplified rules, First Journey is the perfect way to introduce new players to the game of cross-country travel. Just like in Ticket to Ride, players collect train cards, claim routes, and try to connect cities coast-to-coast. In First Journey, though, routes are shorter, train cards are drawn straight from the deck, and the game ends when one player completes six tickets, claiming the Golden Ticket as their prize. Climb aboard, travelers – your incredible First Journey awaits!
WARNING: Choking Hazard – Contains small parts not suitable for children under 3 years.
